As grass-cutting season finishes up, now is a good time to think about equipment needs.👍

Southern Ground Care in #Southampton bought a 2.4m #MajorSwift roller mower in 2017 to fulfill contracts for #schools #football and #rugby pitches. “We have many loyal customers who have come to expect a high level of workmanship from us,” explained Keith Petley.

They upgraded to the 4.0m winged model this autumn, strengthening the company's sports turf management prowess.

"The front and rear rollers deliver a beautiful striped finish even when the grass is wet. In addition to doing a fantastic job, the mower is easy to maintain and cost effective to run," adds Keith.

Thanks for the business! Onwards and upwards! 💪

Action shots from Southern Ground Care hard at work in the Turf Tender 412. This top dresser has all features of the Dakota 410 with an even larger capacity. The 2-yard 412 Turf Tender requires compact or midsize tractors for towing.

Thanks for sharing Southern Ground Care 😎
